Rare 1980s 27" Kuwahara Road Touring Bike JAPAN

I'm no Kuwahara expert but I doubt those bars are one of the 'all original parts'.

Way too much for a dangerous & crappy toy bike:

[h=2]Classic 70's Swing Bike - $750 (westminster)[/h]


here it is, Jimmy Osmond's favorite bike!

the original swing bike, made in the late 70's to amaze and astound the boring bike scene of the time.

original patented frame with springs and lock-out lever, all stripped down and painted the original orange, with matching fork.

16" front wheel with drum brake and new kenda tire and tube.

mini ape hangers, banana seat and original 20" back wheel with a fat moped tire completes the muscle bike look.

"O" series frame dates it to 1977-78.

completely functional, fun, and funky!

not a complete original, but since they were originally built in china, you can still get all the crappy parts to restore it almost exact. a couple bucks for fenders, chainguard and a new sissy bar and no one will know it's not fresh from the back of your dusty garage.

or just ride it the way it is. most of the ones left have been modified and upgraded anyway, and are still selling for a grand.

i'm asking $750 obo. only trades i'm interested in would be vintage bmx (no gt's, dynos, or other run-of-the-mill junk,) pre-war cruisers (no schwinns) or other weird bikes. and i ain't trading down, so no junk.

it's one of those bikes i kinda wanna keep for myself, but i just don't have time to show it off at the beach, and i hate having bikes gathering dust in my living room.

call, text or email and take this crazy bastard off my hands...

Actually not all that crappy. Not dangerous unless you ride it like an idiot. Toy bike? It depends on how you look at it. What it is, is pretty cool, very collectible, and yes somewhat valuable.,,,,BD

OLDER SCHWINN BIKE - $35 (bozeman)

ALL THERE JUST NEEDS WD-40 TO LOOSEN UP SOME STUFF. SIZE PROLLY 58CM OR L-XL JUST 35.00 BUCKS

Oh, I'm fairly sure it'll need a bit more than WD-40 to "loosen up some stuff." And it's "prolly" a bit bigger than 58cm. Shocker that this fellow is even familiar with the metric system. Price is a bit high... for the bike rack. But seriously, I'm surprised the frame is in such good condition (AFAIK from the mediocre pictures) given the atrocious state of the chain and freewheel. Sad to see a SLT 12.2 in this state.

Actually the price is a bit high but I have seen them sell on Ebay for $300 -500.00 A friend found one at a gargae sale and I rode it once in his driveway. Very strange! It rides pretty normally but when you push against one side of the handlebars the bike starts dog-tracking at quite an angle. It was the 70s!!!

He's way high on the price for sure. There are still a lot of these out there NOS in the boxes and he's creeping into the price range for one of those with a bike that's ridable but missing a lot of the tough (expensive) parts.

Purple denim Hannah Montana bike helmet. Excellent condition! Would fit about a 5-7 year old.

Just like Centurion became Diamondback, Hannah became Miley. Be the talk of your next club ride with this vintage lid.
